Yuzawa Kogen review by cactus
The bottom field called Nunoba had no snow but would suit begnners nicely - a wide and even slope with two lifts.

The top field called Yuzawa Kogen suited the kids,(beginner skiers) but they enjoy being in the snow regardless.

There's a long and boring cat track around the back which they liked. I guess would offer some short drop offs in powder conditions.

Overall though it's not very challenging for the experienced skier / boarder, and the courses are all on weird traverses.
Date visited: From 10 March, 2007
Snow condition on visit: Spring Soft to Slushy on the main track. Icy below.
Things I liked: It was open. Great views from the top.
Things I didn't like: The courses are all roped off and angled across the slopes.
